Parking—the eternal problem in
Where to park; where to get change for the meter; who to call if
car gets towed. The list is endless, but not hopeless. Just a few tips
will save you hours of fried nerves during your visit to Miami
Tip #1...Don't bring a car at all unless you
have to. Take a taxi or shuttle from the airport to Miami Beach.
Once you're here, everywhere you'll want to go is either a five
minute walk or a $0.25 ride on the
South Beach Local, which circles South Beach
Tip #2...Miami Beach has installed brand new
solar-powered parking meters in certain high-traffic areas of the
city such as Ocean Drive. These machines operate with dollars or
credit/debit cards instead of change. These photos will help you get
acquainted with them.
Parking Cards can also be purchased at many locations
around the city...
City Hall Parking Department
(one block north of Lincoln Road)
Chamber of Commerce on Washington Avenue
News Cafe on Ocean Drive
Van Dyke on Lincoln Road
Wolfsonian Museum on Washington Avenue
and many other locations.
The Parking Department accepts cash and
MasterCard/ Visa credit card payment for the parking cards. For the
most current list of locations call (305) 673-7505.
